    (3 credits)
    Prerequisites: EPID 5400 . The purpose of this course is to further develop the methodological concepts underlying the science of epidemiology. The material covered is intended to broaden and extend the student’s understanding of the elements of study design, data analysis, and inference in epidemiologic research, including issues related to causation, bias, and confounding. The primary aim of the course is to provide a working knowledge of the fundamentals of epidemiology as well as to serve as a foundation for more advanced study of epidemiologic methods. The course consists of lectures and workshop sessions. The workshop sessions are designed to reinforce the concepts and topics covered in the lectures.
